I should have known, but until I just googled around did not know much about Chris Patten. I found this:

As Yvetta says Patten has a long history as an israel-basher. Former EU Commissioner Bolkestein says of him (when Patten was a Commissioner):

"On another matter, if my memory is correct, when there were inquiries on the issue of Palestinian misuse of EU funds, Patten replied: ‘We are sure that all the money has been put to good use.'"

Patten consistently denied that EU money was being abused by the Palestinians.

Someone like Chris Patten, someone with his  history, his smugness, his arrogance and his inner essential ignorance and stupidity,  would I suppose be bound to exhibit  a complete want of sympathy for Israel, and a deep sympathy for its mortal enemies, Hamas, the PLO, and so on.
